TERMIS 2021 | The future of regenerative medicine in transplantation

Giuseppe Orlando, MD, PhD, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, describes recent advances in the field of transplantation, including the development of β cell replacement therapies for Type 1 diabetes. Prof. Orlando additionally discusses novel organ preservation techniques which utilizes fluids that store organs at room temperature instead of ice, as well as the use of mesenchymal stem cells and mitochondria to render once unusable organs suitable for transplantable. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
